The short answer? Of course they can!
The long answer? The S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. White SOTO Hand-Dyed Overalls. Okay, maybe not so long. But it’s about to be.
It is this behavioral power of clothing that led the American multimedia artist, Sterling Ruby, to establish S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA, a unisex ready-to-wear label. Dissolving the boundaries between art and fashion, Ruby has worked with some of the most eminent names in the industry like Raf Simons, Dior and Calvin Klein, all the while exploring his own passion to bring out a material’s expressive potential. Launched in 2019, S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA. finds its roots in the West Coast’s historic denim industry, it’s utilitarian garments exposed to alternative dye, bleach, wash, and rinse processes.
This overall is indeed no less than a piece of art, with the colorway and pattern on each item unique. Made from the historically durable non-stretch, but with a twist – it’s white! While its multicolor hand-dyed pattern is what makes it distinguished. Adjustable elasticized shoulder straps with overall buckle fastening and button fastening at waist make sure you can easily glide in and out of it, while also holding it up securely. Furthermore, it’s perfect for those who wants to go absolutely hands-free, this overall’s got a five-pocket styling AND patch pockets at the chest. With added details like a leather logo patch in black at back, button-fly and logo-engraved gunmetal-tone hardware makes this turquoise-toned piece of jeans, as Ruby himself says, a mode of artistic expression, seeking to engage the wearer by impacting the way they “think, feel, and move.”
On a less philosophical note, I love how it feels like you were painting walls/roofs/cars/random children and the quirky vibe that emanates from it is just enough to create a mini-rebellion against the fashion police, kinda like those “Grey Space” guys in Emily in Paris. If this is what you believe Haute Couture is in the modern day, make sure to snag one at SSENSE for $1700 USD!
